Hardware acceleration on Fedora 37 with AMD Radeon 680M1 min read
I recently got a new laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad T14s AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850U with a AMD Radeon 680M. As a Linux and Fedora 37 user, I wanted to have hardware acceleration to e.g. use DaVinci Resolve.
It tool me quite a while to get in working, but here is what I did:
- Install the RPM Fusion repositories (free should be sufficient)
- Swap the mesa driver to drivers provided by RPM Fusion
sudo dnf swap mesa-va-drivers mesa-va-drivers-freeworld --allowerasing
sudo dnf swap mesa-vdpau-drivers mesa-vdpau-drivers-freeworld --allowerasing
- Install the ROCm OpenCL drivers by
sudo dnf install rocm-opencl
That’s it and
clinfo should show all details. After this, Shotcut was able to
find hvec (hardware acceleration) and use it as well. Furthermore, DaVinci Resolve started as it was
able to detect a GPU.
